Do I Need a New Roof or Roof Repairs? Virginia Beach

- Monday, August 26, 2013

It is often hard for homeowners to know if they need roof repairs or a new roof, and it is an expensive endeavor. You need to know who to trust when you ask that question.

Here are some sings to look for that are easy to see to help let you know that you need roof repairs or replacement.

Leakage in the attic after wind driven rain.
Possible cause: Leaky or inadequate shingle underlayment or deteriorated flashing.

Leakage in attic after ice build up.
Possible cause: Inadequate shingle underlayment allows water from ice dams to leak into the attic.

Blistering and/or peeling of interior and/or exterior paint.
Possible cause: Excessive temperature or high humidity to do poor attic ventilation.

Stains on interior ceilings and walls or mold and mildew growth.
Possible cause: Inadequate or faulty shingle underlayment allowing leakage or enadequate ventilation.

Exterior decay.
Possible cause: poor attic ventilation.

Missing, cracked, or curled roof shingles.
Possible cause: Shingles have reached the end of their useful life.

Dark, "Dirty-Looking" areas on your roof.
Possible cause: Loss of granules due to age of shingles.

Excessive energy costs.
Possible cause: Insufficient attic ventilation causes heating/cooling system to run excessively

In warm weather, inadequate ventilation will trap hot air in the attic, causing air conditioning systems to work harder, or leaving your home's interior hotter and less comfortable. In both hot and cold weather, insufficient attic ventilation may cause moisture in the attic to become trapped and condense on the rafters. This condensed moisture can drip down onto the insulation and reduce its effectiveness. Excessive energy costs can result.

For a roofer  you can trust and for more information on a new roof or roof repairs, contact SB Roofing.
